Intro: Paracord Quick Deploy Bracelet

This bracelet carries 10' of paracord and a stainless steel Fish Bone Gear Tie. It's simple to weave and even easier to deploy. 

Make sure to check out the Paracord Contest

Caution: Never wear a bracelet around machinery or any situation where it could be caught or hung up. Severe injure may occur.  



Step 1: Make 3 Loops

Take 10' of cord and lay out three loops. The lengths in the picture are 9" long. They will be shortened later.

Take the long end and begin wrapping it around the two lower loops. You'll do a zig zag weave in between them. 

Step 2: Keep It Tight

As you're adding the weave push everything tight together. This helps fit all 10' onto the bracelet. Keep going until all the cord is used.

Step 3: Shorten the Loops

Now that everything is in place you have to shorten all 3 loops. Start by pulling the single loop. That's the one on the right hand side of the picture. This will reduce the 2 lower loops. Once the lower loops are both about 1/2" long, thread one through the other. 

Step 4: Add the Fish Bone

Thread the single loop side through the eye of the Fish Bone. Hook the loop over the front hook. Attach the other side to the tail. Make the final adjustment by pulling the tail end of the cord. Trim off the excess and melt the ends. 

Thanks for reading.

Great guide, made learning the weave very easy. I changed it a little from a bracelet to a lanyard for my knife.

Awesome. Now I have a use for my fish bone's rather than just letting them sit in a drawer. :)

Have you thought about wrapping the remaining standing end (that you cut off at the end) around the rest of the fish bone? I hate being left with small pieces of paracord.

Fantastic! So happy to see the survival bracelet come to life!!! Now for a paracord & multiple Fish Bone belt!

Have you started mass production yet? If so please post a link so I may purchase one (or a few) as well as share it with friends/family. Living in WI we do lots of camping and these would come in handy!!

Yup. Completely aware of the Fish Bones being available for purchase. I was referring to premade bracelets and belts using two or more Fish Bones, being available for purchase online or in select stores and was directing my question at the creator of this fine 'ible as we had talked about putting the Fish Bones on bracelets and such about a year ago (?) when the Fish Bone 'ible was originally posted (I'm kind of a big fan of his work *grin*).

You make me blush=). They're not for sale as bracelets yet but it's in the works. A belt! I got to get to work on that.

Excellent piece. This is a must for the backpack. Seems to be the easiest and most functional quick release idea, and great for just a storage method. A shackle hook would also work well for the buckle.
